I conduct research in experimental high energy physics with collider experiments. Currently, my main focus is on the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron proton anti-proton collider working on the L1 and L2 Central Track Trigger. Much of my career has been with the OPAL experiment at LEP studying electroweak physics and searching for new phenomena with electron-positron collisions. I am also very much committed to realizing the International Linear Collider. I have worked extensively on developing the physics case, and am now participating in detector R&D for this machine.
